I'm so sorry you've been treated so poorly.

I've had a similar situation (not quite as bad, but hateful and hurtful none the less) and what helped us get through this was DH and I having a united front. He made it clear to his mother that he would not have a relationship with her if she could not be respectful of us. She doesn't like it, but she knows if she wants to be a part of her sons life she will have to respect and honor the fact that I am his wife, and both of us will demand that respect.

If she does not continue behaving appropriately, she will not be allowed around our children, and Rob will not contact her. It is extreme, but for us, necessary.

I hope someday they learn better, and treat you both better.
